The Koman Family Outpatient Pavilion is the last project in an unprecedented, multiyear expansion and development phase at the University of California, San Diego, Health Sciences Campus in La Jolla, CA. Designed by CO Architects, the $140 million, 156,000-square-foot facility opened in March 2018. The four-story facility establishes a new model for health care delivery within an academic setting. It also centralizes and integrates several outpatient services to support all elements of the patient journey.
Located in the heart of the UC San Diego Health’s campus in La Jolla, CA, the Koman Family Outpatient Pavilion follows an “all-in-one” approach to offer multidisciplinary specialists and comprehensive services for convenient patient care in one facility. The design team examined extensive data to define a flexible, appropriately sized program that considers the whole patient, delivers a continuum of care, and enhances and streamlines the visitor experience from arrival to departure.
The April 25th event recognized the generosity of the Koman family and their commitment to creating a healthier world. Located on UC San Diego’s La Jolla campus, the 156,000-square-foot building represents the most recent addition to the university’s world-class medical campus.
The preferences of patients, families, and medical staff for interiors that mirror life outside facilities’ walls is resulting in a healthcare design typology that’s colored by retail, hospitality, and other design sectors.
With a diagnosis of breast cancer, everything changes. The calendar becomes filled with scheduled tests and scans, perhaps daily infusions or weekly visits with medical and surgical experts. Depending on the type and stage of cancer, treatment can last months or years. To make the experience significantly easier for patients, UC San Diego Health has designed a state-of-the-art space to bring all team members and services into one convenient location.
